OoooH That will teach them
OoooH, 9 Million, that will teach them! My bet is that the petty cash tin at Cupertino has more than that in it. Well done ACCC, widely referred to here as TitsOnaBull

Maybe I am just a grumpy old git. But a lot of the current tech in this particular space seems to be a very crappy answer in search of a question none of us really asked. I mean I have been known to shout at the odd recalcitrant server, but I am not sure I am ready for them to start answering me back.
This is not a bad place to start if you are feeling a tad insecure about your VPN service
If you could not be arsed reading the article at least ask your VPN service the following questions which the article is based on
" 1. Do you keep ANY logs which would allow you to match an IP-address and a time stamp to a user/users of your service? If so, what information do you hold and for how long?
2. What is the registered name of the company and under what jurisdiction(s) does it operate?
3. Do you use any external visitor tracking, email providers or support tools that hold information about your users/visitors?
4. In the event you receive a takedown notice (DMCA or other), how are these handled?
5. What steps are taken when a valid court order or subpoena requires your company to identify an active user of your service? Has this ever happened?
6. Is BitTorrent and other file-sharing traffic allowed (and treated equally to other traffic) on all servers? If not, why?
7. Which payment systems do you use and how are these linked to individual user accounts?
8. What is the most secure VPN connection and encryption algorithm you would recommend to your users?
9. How do you currently handle IPv6 connections and potential IPv6 leaks? Do you provide DNS leak protection and tools such as “kill switches” if a connection drops?
10. Do you offer a custom VPN application to your users? If so, for which platforms?
11. Do you have physical control over your VPN servers and network or are they hosted by/accessible to a third party? Do you use your own DNS servers?
12. What countries are your servers located in?"
Remember, Assume nothing, Believe nobody, Check everything.
Even more scary than politicians talking out of their backside, is the issue of Asbestos in the pits. According to the Telstra fact sheet( http://www.telstra.com.au/uberprod/groups/webcontent/@corporate/@about/documents/document/uberstaging_241654.pdf ) The PMG box in your picture contains asbestos, which is a little more alarming than snot or dog cocks. Interesting to see what the cost of remediation will be.
